8/2 National coloring book day.

Did you know adults are using coloring books to reduce stress by droves?

Busy parents and harried business people will go to great lengths to find the newest and best relaxation method, but the stress-reducer that is soaring in popularity is something that most people haven’t done since elementary school — coloring.

Producers of coloring books for adults can’t seem to print them fast enough.

7/28 National Get Gnarley Day

The word “Gnarly” gets a bad rap.  It can mean “bad” or “dangerous” but can also be exciting, which is why surfers often use the term to describe the waves they tackle.
